LEAP Leadership

We focus on just one thing, the needs of small law firms.

Richard Hugo-Hamman

Executive Chairman

"We have found that there are four great challenges facing lawyers in small law firms; these are the ability to:

  • consistently deliver quality legal advice and services;
  • enjoy legal practice more with less stress;
  • generate sufficient working capital to grow the firm;
  • make a profitable business that will have value in the future.

Most lawyers in small law firms want to help people (people like you and me) when in need and it is difficult to balance clients’ needs with the demands of running a small business. The business side of things always suffers. LEAP redresses this imbalance.

For more than 20 years we have constantly researched the needs of lawyers in small firms and designed great solutions to help them. We have found that the challenges are very similar in all countries. The human needs of clients are the same after all.

We continue to invest in a cycle of continuous innovation designing and developing solutions that take advantage of the latest technologies to bring costs down, and which are remarkably practical and natural to use for anyone familiar with the operations of small law firms.

No matter what your involvement in small law firms is, I invite you to make contact with me directly, I will always be happy to take your call or exchange correspondence."


Chris Stock

Chief Executive Officer

"I am the CEO of LEAP in the USA and have 9 years experience working in Professional Services and Product Management. Before working at LEAP I spent 7 years working in small and mid-size law firms which gave me insight into how lawyers typically work and what can be done to improve efficiency within firms.

Retaining a small law firm is one of the most intensely personal things someone can do in their lifetime. Whether it is to construct a Will, manage a Divorce or battle court cases regarding lawful wrongdoings, lawyers at small firms are at the forefront of what makes us a functioning society.

Lawyers help people. At LEAP, we strive to help lawyers do this as effectively and efficiently for their clients and their business as possible. Helping lawyers help people is the driving force behind my passion for legal technology, in particular, the best software available to small firms in the world - LEAP


Kelly Clifford

President, Content and Automated Forms

"I lead LEAP’s Content Team that designs with the philosophy of making it easy for attorneys to produce their legal content fast.

Having been with LEAP for over 14 years, I have worked with hundreds of law firms to gain an understanding of what the attorney as well as their staff needs to run their practice efficiently.

I work closely with the development team at LEAP to build a unique content delivery system that my staff of former paralegals and attorneys can use with ease. This ensures content is delivered to clients quickly. I strive to discover cutting-edge, innovative ways to provide content to attorneys on-the-move.

There are thousands of automated legal forms and legal documents in LEAP across the common areas of law, typically practiced by small law firms in New York and New Jersey. My team is here to make sure you have all the forms available to you, and that they are up- to-date and easy-to-use. We welcome any feedback from our clients."


Paul Macaulay

Chief Operating Officer

At LEAP, we have a culture of never giving up, and we never do.

The biggest hurdle for smaller law firms is the ability to convert from manual processes to professional practice management solutions. We are passionate about empowering firms through this transition, no matter what their current skill level is. There is no reason why the smallest firm cannot have the same powerful IT functionality as the larger ones.

As the Chief Operating Officer, my responsibility is leading the LEAP Team in providing our clients with a world class experience. Our core focus in operations is converting your data, training installation, and providing continued professional support.

The best way to discover LEAP is to experience it yourself, and then have the will to change and improve.


Ramsey Cabbani

Director of Sales and Marketing LEAP USA

"Helping small law firms make more money with the same number of people is my number one priority.”

If you are a sole practitioner, or a member of a small law firm that wants to increase profit, leveraging the best technology is your opportunity to thrive in a competitive marketplace.

My teams are laser-focused on the needs of small law firms, and live the mantra: never, ever give up.

This is made easy when you work in a highly driven, dynamic business that is determined to achieve its goals.

I welcome you to contact me via email, so that I can personally show you how LEAP can assist your business.”


Vedran Solaja

Vice President of Business Development

"As the Vice President of Business Development it is my responsibility to develop strategic relationships inside the legal technology industry and introduce our ground-breaking new software innovation that is revolutionizing the legal industry and changing how small law firms work.

I have been involved in helping small law firms to understand legal technology for more than 10 years. I am very fortunate to work with a world class team offering a world class solution."


Manorama Savanur

Vice President of Product Integration

"Beautiful software should be simple and easy to use.

As the VP of U.S. Product Integration, I aim to provide a seamless integration between LEAP and the Third Party System we are integrating with so that the user has a great experience.

The work we have done integrating Easysoft CDF with LEAP for efficient Real Estate Closing is a great example of the work we enjoy doing. With the rapidly expanding growth of digital transactions as a consequence of TILA-RESPA and MISMO compliance and the establishment of the CFPB, we will continue making it as natural as possible for busy real estate attorneys and paralegals to take advantage of the new technologies working directly from the Electronic Matter in LEAP.”


Amy Marinho

Vice President of Product

"Personal service creates lifelong partnerships.

I enjoy helping solo and small law practices because they help everyday people in some of the most important events of their lives.

I am passionate about ensuring software evolves with the ever changing legal landscape. As a result, I have coached attorneys over the last 5 years on software evolution caused by major regulatory changes.

At LEAP we devote a great deal of time to understanding how our software can make our clients’ life easier."

Amy is responsible for working with firms to help them get the most out of LEAP.
